Ok...so let's get to my project for today. Since we're each picking our own stores this week, I picked the shop Rustic Treasures. And I picked this really adorable pumpkin harvest bench as my inspiration. Ok....so I had the idea for a project first...then went looking for a store to get the final inspiration from.
I just got the new Gina K Designs set "Autumn Beauty" by Theresa Momber and new it would be perfect for this inspiration piece.
For the card I started with a base of Chocolate Kiss Pure Luxury cardstock. I layered up designer paper "Cheerful Charlie" by Cosmo Cricket and "Grandpa's Trunk" Whitewash cardstock by Core'dinations. The Core'dinations paper was embossed with the "Distressed Stripes" Cuttlebug Embossing folder then sanded to reveal the core color. I then stamped it with the "Weathered" background stamp by Stampin' Up! with Walnut Stain distress ink and rubbed on Fired Brick distress ink. I ripped it and then sewed the 2 layers together and distressed the edges. The cream ribbon is from MFT and the brown is from the Gina K Designs StampTV set. I colored the pumpkins using Copics. The tag is the center part of the oval "Fancy Tags" Spellbinders die that's been rubbed with Walnut Stain distress ink.
For the matching box I started out with an unfinished box from Michael's and painted it with white acrylic paint. I then painted the front with Tim Holtz crackle paint in Fired Brick. I then rubbed on Walnut Stain and Fired Brick Distress inks. The little brads have their prongs broken off and are adhered with mini glue dots.
The next stop on the hop is the very talented and very sweet Christi Snow.
